Important information about availability of allotment plots

Allotment garden plots are in high demand and there are waiting lists in place for all allotment sites.


Those wishing to express an interest in an allotment garden plot can apply online and will be placed on the waiting list. However, applicants should be aware that the council can offer no guarantee of availability of an allotment garden plot or a specific allotment site, nor can it guarantee parking or toilet facilities at, or close to, any site.  


Existing allotment garden tenants may apply for an additional allotment garden (a maximum of 2 (of any size) may be held in total from 2021) via the online waiting list application process. However, due to demand, those on the waiting lists without an allotment garden will take precedence and will always be offered vacant allotment garden plots first. 

AllotmentsApplying for an allotment garden plot

Applicants who apply online will receive an automated acknowledgement. Applicants will be added to the requested site waiting list as a result of this process but will only be contacted if/when an allotment garden becomes available. 

Please read the  Allotment garden waiting list and allocation process terms and conditions [126KB]  before applying.

Reporting problems with an allotment

If you experience any of the following issues at one of our allotments, you can report it to us using our online form below.

  • Lost allotment gate key
    If you have lost your gate key, we can provide a replacement key for the cost of £5 within 10 working days of the submitted form. 
  • Vandalism in an allotment
    If fencing, gates, communal sheds and signs are vandalised, we will make every effort to repair or make these safe as soon as possible. If plot holders have personal items vandalised (including sheds and crops), they should report this to the police as soon as they possibly can and get a CAD reference number.
  • Repair required on allotments
    If a repair is required (leaks on water tanks, repairs to damaged gates and work to trees to ensure that they are safe), we will get this arranged as soon as possible. 
  • Overgrown allotment
    We aim to cut overgrown grass and vegetation on vacant plots twice a year. Grass cutting is carried out in summer and autumn.
  • Fly tipping in an allotment
    We do not collect rubbish from allotment sites; plot holders are responsible for disposing of any waste that they may generate whilst working their plot. If waste is dumped on allotments, please let us know and we will take steps to get it removed and take enforcement action where possible. When reporting dumped rubbish, please provide us with the name of the allotment site and the location of the waste.
